On this Sunday we walked around the central Alkmaar area with many shops and restaurants, passing several that I thought might have some quality fare. Finally we stopped at Gulden Vlies for a dish of fish each. I thought the meal was average at best, not anything special. We were seated next to the canal, perhaps being out front by... More

Dined twice as a group on a set price deal from the Amrath hotel. Interesting location - an old theatre, converted some time ago, with some of the trimmings remaining. We were made to feel very much at home. The service was extra friendly and acccomodated the needs of our two vegetarians very flexibly. Though some of us chose the... More

Ate here in June 2012, arrived in Alkmaar on the sunday afternoon and had this restaurant recommended by the staff at the Amrath Hotel. Excellent choice, apologies from our waiter Tom that they didn't have an English menu but he patiently went through all the options. Lovely filling Dutch casseroles- chicken for me beef for my better half. Just what... More

I often visit this restaurant in Alkmaar and the food is very good and not very expensive . It is near a canal and you can sit outside in the summer. The food is real dutch food and they have a range of beers as well. They were very helpful when a friend wanted vegan food and they provided a... More

The food's nice, but the service isn't. You usually have to wait for a long time.
